I realize he committed a crime(s) although, let’s be real here….. ROBBERYIII is merely SHOPLIFTING & ASSAULTING A P.S.O can be as minimal as pulling away from a store ” theft prevention” employee.. This type of crime doesn’t warrant being sent to PRISON for 3-5 yrs!!!! This is a prime example of why our prison system is so overcrowded.. EXTREMELY OVERCROWDED!!! We have way more serious crimes being committed, and A LOT of these people will work for the cops to get out of being sent to PRISON!!!! ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING!!!!!
